Apple has announced new bands for its Apple Watch Hermès, which for the first time will be sold separately to the watch face.

Available from April 19 online in some countries, in select Apple stores, Hermès stores and other choice boutiques, the four new colours are Bleu Paon (green), Bleu Saphir (blue), Blanc (white) and Feu (orange). The original five colours (Fauve, Noir, Capucine, Bleu Jean and Etain) are still available, bringing the full suite of colours to nine.

The new bands will come in single ($500) and double tour ($750) styles.
